Quality diabetes care requires a team approach, and at its core, are well-informed patients and staff. The Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management provides this opportunity to acquire knowledge of quality diabetes care and disseminate this knowledge to providers and patients. The ultimate goal of our Center is to improve the health and well being of people living with diabetes.

In a time where food and nutrition enter into almost every conversation, it is very fulfilling to be able to contribute to promoting safe, healthy nutrition advice to the community. The importance of food in the management and prevention of disease make the old saying "you are what you eat" truer than ever.

It is my pleasure to be a part of the Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management team. It's a privilege to be able to teach you and your family about diabetes care. As a registered nurse, I am your advocate to help, guide, support and give you the knowledge that you need to successfully manage your care. Whether it is a new diagnosis or a change in treatment we can help you through it step by step until you have gained the confidence to self-manage your care successfully. It is a great feeling to see patients feeling confident about their diabetes management and living a healthy life.

Roberta Silber, RN, MSN, CDE
Being a diabetes educator has allowed me to combine two of the things that I enjoy the most-nursing and teaching-and this combination has allowed me to have a very fulfilling career. As a person with diabetes, I feel I learn a physical, emotional or spiritual lesson from every person with diabetes that I encounter.
I believe managing diabetes without the benefit of education is like trying to get somewhere that you have never been before without directions or a map. I feel my role is not only to provide you with the map, but to help you navigate the obstacles and challenges that arise on the different paths that you may take to control diabetes, and thus empower you to live a life that is as healthy, happy and fulfilling with diabetes as it would be without it.

Paula Hazard, RD, BS, CDE
Food is an important part of our lives for social and health reasons. As a registered dietitian, my goal is to help people learn to eat to maintain their health without feeling deprived of the social aspect of eating. There are many medical conditions which require nutritional management. By teaching lifestyle changes and addressing moderation, people can improve their food choices and be empowered to take control of their eating habits. This can help them manage their medical conditions. Once management of a medical condition is achieved, there is an improved sense of well-being which has a positive impact on overall health and wellness.
Shanti Kengeter, RD, BS, CDE
My purpose as a Certified Diabetes Educator, specializing in nutrition, is helping people recognize what barriers are blocking them in making healthier food and lifestyle choices.
I celebrate with each person as they discover the increased well-being, energy, confidence and joy that is theirs as they move towards their personal health care goals.
This is what life is really all about...people encouraging and mentoring each other to achieve their fullest potential.
"Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us." -- Marrianne Williamson
Kathy Lombardi, RD, BS, CDE
Food is not only essential to our health, but it is an important part of our lives. In todays world there is so much information about health and food it is hard to know what is accurate. I became a Registered Dietitian to help people understand how to eat well and make sense of all this nutrition information. By teaching our clients I hope we are helping them to understand not only how nutrition will impact their health but what changes can be made to improve it. This is especially true in our clients with diabetes. We educate to empower others to be in control of their lives and nothing is more satisfying than helping our clients reach their goals of improved health and well being.
• Region 2 Co-chair of the NJ Dietetic Association 2011-2013.
Michelle D. Wright MS, RD, CDE, CSSD
Nutrition and wellness are the keys to reducing our risk of illness and promoting longevity. My goal as a dietitian is to educate the community about the healthful benefits attained through proper nutrition. Whether I am educating a client with diabetes, hypertension, childhood obesity or those who suffer from eating disorders, my goal is to help them make healthy choices that they will be able to maintain throughout their lives. I believe that your body is the greatest instrument you will ever own and you must take care of it.

Working as a nutritionist allows me to help others - by being a teacher, a motivator, and a support person. I enjoy helping people focus and execute their goals for healthier lifestyle habits.

My primary goal is patient satisfaction. From the time I answer your phone call, to checking you in, I want you to have a pleasant and fulfilling experience. I will assist in answering any questions or concerns you may have in a timely and efficient manner. I look forward to providing you with a positive and professional experience at our center.
